This section contains FTP settings for connection to the server of the shopping system to which you would like your feed file imported. Most of the shopping systems offer different ways of uploading feed files to their server: this may be done directly in your Merchant Center, by using a feed file URL for transfer or by FTP/SFTP/SSH connection. The FeedPro extension can be configured to upload the feed file by FTP to the destination server automatically if such a feature is offered by the target shopping system.
